May blocks from Krista

I haven’t played the lotto recently, but I just couldn’t resist this month’s block.  I finally got around to it, after a reminder from Sophie’s post today.  My first block came out the right size (just barely).  And then I looked at it again and realized that I had swapped the colour on the star points, but not the center.  So the block was wrong 🙁  So, I cut a new center for it’s alternate block, and tried again.  This one worked much better.

I decided I knew what I was doing, and my blocks were coming out the right size, so I cut 8 more squares and sliced them up.  Then I sewed the first one, and realized that nothing was going together correctly – I had messed up my sewing order this time.  I did manage to make this block the right size, but the star is pretty wonky.

The next 7 went more smoothly.  Here are my 9 blocks for this month.
